Fond du Lac Random Boulders

This gorgeous lake house design evokes French Country style through the elegance and sophisticated stone colors of a custom blend of Fond du Lac stone veneers and cut stone arches, caps, and window surrounds on the home facade. The highest level of the garden terrace for the back yard’s sloped hill is a custom field ledge stone arrangement with a natural stone pattern mix of Fond du Lac Ashlar (Country Squire), Webwall, and Castle Rock stone veneers. Fond du Lac Cut Stone is the perfect match of real stone cut for the wall stone caps in combination with the exterior full veneer stone or thin stone cladding of the home and landscape design. The lower levels of dry stacked stone retaining wall feature Fond du Lac Random Boulders. The natural stone steps that navigate beach goers to the bottom of the slope look to be a mix of Fond du Lac Outcropping Steps and Snapped Steps. At the base of the elevation, a lakeside beach fire pit surrounded by a circle of Granite Cobbles and Boulders and adirondack chair seating sets an inviting scene for an outdoor back yard bonfire.
